that lapsed in 2004. and he'd like stricter laws on gun trafficking. but senator schumer, just as i challenged wayne lapierre of the nra very hard when this came up, i challenge you as well with a question of, is this really going to make a difference? and rich lawry wrote something that caught my attention in "the national review." no one can write a law against mothers owning guns that one day might be turned against them by deranged sons who then commit horrific acts of murder-suicide. shooting rampages are hard to prevent because they are so often committed by young men with no criminal records who want to die. these are adult facts that don't intrude on the childish world of white house policy making. he notes adam lanza in newtown, his own mother of course passed a background check. >> here's the bottom line. these laws are not perfect. and you'll always find certain exceptions. but they make a huge difference. every major person who has studied the brady law, which is the most significant gun safety law we've passed in the last 20 years has said it has reduced gun violence dramatically.
, as well. >> let's talk about gun laws because i know they're considering gun laws in texas that would allow swron to carry a concealed weapon on a campus. they can't do that now, right? >> reporter: it's interesting. the texas legislators have gone through this debate several times. many years ago they passed a conceal handgun law where you can hear a handgun and that's what was used in this incident. but there are places where even despite having that license you you can't carry a handgun. churches and school campuses are one of those. ironically enough, there are lawmakers in austin that want to change that aspect of the concealed handgun law here in texas and allow students to carry guns on to campus. so we'll see how this plays out in that debate, as well. >> all right. ed lavendera, thanks so much. >>> investigators say the new mexico teenager accused of murdering members of his family had hoped to go on a killing spree and die in a shoot-out with police. the 15-year-old was arrested saturday night after deputies found the bodies of his mother, father, brother and two of his sist
, because i agree with you, there ought to be given more leeway, but under current law, they were limited. host: secretary clinton before the house foreign affairs committee. your reaction from the testimony. chesapeake, virginia, pamela, independent line. caller: i'm glad to be on your show. host: glad to have you on. go ahead. caller: i have a couple of comments. regarding the republicans, their aggressiveness towards secretary clinton and their questioning i thought was appropriate for the crimes that were committed. however, on the other side of the aisle, the democrats were too accommodating and skirting the issues of the crime committed. and i think that that shows total bipartisan problems. it shows that there is still a total political posture. i think if you watched from the perspective of the viewer from television, secretary clinton each time she was questioned by a democrat, smiled and smiled with lots of gleam in her eye towards them. whereas with the republicans questioning, there was not that smile, there was not that pleasure of questioning. and the reason being is because
in jewish settlements of occupied palestinian land, which is seen illegal by international law. but even that is not enough to appease some of his former supporters on the right. -- >> one report said that there was a record surge in settlement expansion, not enough for those on the right to say that he is not tough enough for the palestinians. >> israel has to be strong on their negotiations and by being weak -- this is detrimental. >> others worry that his decision to form an alliance with the older-nationalist lieberman could hurt israel overseas. >> israel is going to be under the brunt of increased international criticism and what is most dangerous is the criticism from europe and the united states, not from the people who don't particularly like us. >> benjamin netanyahu and barack obama have never been close, and the u.s. president is resigned to a difficult relationship with a more right-wing government in israel. -- >> an election watched very closely, even here on inauguration day, and prince harry is on his way home after another toward of duty in afghanistan. he has confessed
the country to oppose the white house effort to reform the nation's gun laws. at demonstrations in pennsylvania and ohio, gun owners pilloried calls for stricter gun control. >> no law put on law abiding citizens has ever deterred crime. they're going to take my gun so i can get shot. >> my thoughts is, tell the leftwing liberal idiots in washington to leave our guns alone. we're not hurting anything. it is the criminals. deal with the criminals, not the law abiding citizens. >> the pro-gun rallies also coincided with a series of nationwide gun shows where at least five people were wounded when their firearms accidentally went off. in north carolina, three people were injured when a shotgun accidentally fired as its owner removed it from its case. another gun owner accidentally shot himself in indianapolis, while an ohio a gun show attendee was injured by stray bullet. president obama is set to publicly take the oath of office today at his second term inauguration in washington. obama gathered with his family sunday in the blue room of the white house to privately recite the 35-
the law. our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. >> sean: all right. while obama remains health bent on tackling national security threats like climate change, the president made no substantive reference toss economic matters like putting you the american people back to work or address the single big s threat we face as a country and the world, that of course, being the rise of islamic extremism. instead he wants you to believe that all is right with the world. >> a decade of war is now ending. an economic recovery has beg begun. >> sean: joining me now with analysis of the president's second term agenda and preview of tomorrow's voigte on the debt ceiling. is congressman mccarthy, i promoted you earlier. welcome back. >> thanks for having me. >> sean: and going back to the issue, we played it it, that's all that he said about the economy, 8.3 fewer americans are working today tha
has failed to respond to a terrorist attack appropriately, treated as a law enforcement and diplomatic issue rather than it is the security issue that it is. at its core, this is yet another reflection of president obama's schizophrenic counterterrorism policy. the same administration that unapologetically reins down drone attacks on al qaeda affiliates in pakistan, yemen, will not use other counterterrorism resources to identify, locate and detain the terrorists involved in the death of our ambassador and others in libya. this inconsistent policy may stem from the president's hasty campaign promise to shut down guantanamo bay, gitmo, prematurely transfer detention facilities in iraq and afghanistan. in doing so the president effectively ended america's ability to detain and interrogate terrorists, depriving the f.b.i., the c.i.a. and other agencies of critical opportunities to obtain information on al qaeda networks. today, as the case of benghazi suspect harzi, has demonstrated, the united states is completely reliant on the cooperation of host countries to detain on our behalf and s
will not stand in the way of the bill becoming law. broadly speaking, i will point to what i said, which is the president's position is we have to remove these damaging fights over fulfilling our obligations to pare bills from the process -- we have to remove them entirely, because they are not helpful to our economic growth or the middle class and they create terrible uncertainty for businesses. we can continue to engage and we will with members of congress over the need to produce our deficit in a balanced way. the president has put forward plans that demonstrate the fact that he's willing to compromise, and is willing to meet republicans halfway on these issues and he will continue to do that. but the debt ceiling needs to not be part of that, because it is terrible for the economy and seems to be bad politics. host: white house press secretary jay carney. let's hear purcellville in broken arrow, oklahoma, republican. what is your advice to republicans for the second obama administration? caller: i love c-span and i am so glad that you have this live call-in talk show from individuals
: president obama, sworn in yesterday, promising to change the tax code, immigration laws, and act on climate change. good morning, everyone. we will spend the first part of this morning's "washington journal" on yesterday's inaugural address. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for republicans, 202-585-3881. for independents, 202-585-3882. also, send us a tweet, twitter.com/c-spanwj. post your comments on facebook, or you can e-mail us. journal@c-span.org. let me begin this morning, this is "the wall street journal," had line. "obama vows aggressive agenda." "he is looking beyond the fiscal battle set to dominate the coming weeks." and then a side story, an analysis. "the president is set to fight over a new to do list." "the inauguration was not only grayer, he sounded less like a man ready for lofty flights and more ready for ground battles." and then here is "the washington post," this morning. there had lyme, "we must act." -- there had line, "we must act -- their headline, "we must act." "the new york times," this morning, "a limitless vision." "speech gives quiet goals center stage." "our jou
laws? immigration reform? fiscal fights? perhaps, but in the last couple of days he has relaunched the legendary campaign of his, the second term "obama for america" has become an action, and now joining us is bill from the think tank, and from the chicago sun-times, in the flesh, and this is nice and we don't get to do this often. but let me start with you, because i know you did some writing of the new operation, but how do you think that organizing for action can be without the president at the top of the ticket? >> well, because they have such great mailing lists and such very state-of-the-art social media and communications, and i think it is a very effective way of amplifying the bully pull p pit that president obama has and because it is independent of the democratic national committee and has no other goal except to support the president's agenda, this new group which is supposed to be meet iing as we speak at hotel in washington, i think that it can be a powerful amplification and support system for the obama agenda in the second term. >> do you think that this is also som

counseling program that goes above and beyond anything that i would put into law. all of the students at elgin community college in elgin, illinois, must submit a monthly budget detailing all their costs when they are seeking financial aid. the student then has a mandatory one-on-one meeting with a counselor to review the loan balance, the repayment options and what happens if you default. this community college has implemented a workshop for students who will be graduating during the upcoming semester to discuss repayment options and give them a complete summary of every loan they have taken out. these students are facing debt the likes of which they have never seen in their lives. they are motivated by all of the preaching they have heard from their parents like me saying go to school, get a degree. they are ready to sign up because they want to do what they think is the right thing. they don't know a for-profit school is worthless. they don't know that thousands and thousands of debt will never be able to be repaid. and they don't know that debt will be with them for a lifetime. so
